Frontline: The Suicide Plan

November 11, 2012

Watch The Suicide Plan Preview on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.

You have an incurable illness, you want to die and you want help dying — what can you do? The terminally ill who live in Oregon or Washington can openly ask a doctor for help, but in the rest of country, where physician-assisted suicide is illegal, people who are suffering turn in secret to friends, family and even activist organizations. FRONTLINE explores this shadow world of assisted suicide, where the lines between legality and criminality are blurred, taking viewers inside one of the most polarizing social issues of our time — told by the people choosing to die, and by their “assisters,” individuals and right-to-die organizations at risk of prosecution for their actions.
